Sync and access critical data across all your devices with IDrive Online Backup!

August 19, 2022

Where do you store your critical data? On your local drive where you can access it conveniently even where you are offline? Or on the cloud where it is accessible anytime and from anywhere via the Internet? IDrive gives you the best of both worlds with its Sync & Docs feature.

Simply activate the Sync feature on your devices and IDrive will automatically create a unique, local ‘IDrive-Sync’ folder on each of these devices. The data stored in this folder will be synced across devices in real-time and you can access them anytime from your IDrive account or from the local, ‘IDrive-Sync’ folder in your sync-enabled devices.

IDrive gives you sync storage space for free. There are absolutely no additional charges for this feature. The sync storage space limit will be the same as your cloud backup space limit.

What’s more, you can create office files and collaborate with associates in real-time by sharing the document with ‘view only’ or ‘edit’ permission.
